Kerrin Bradfield (she/they)

Clinical Sexologist/Accredited Sexuality Educator

I am the founder of Open Book Project, a mother of one, and a passionate advocate for relationships and sexuality education in families. 

Working with young people and providing them with quality education has been a focus of my career and I have delivered relationships and sexuality education to thousands of young people and their families. 

For many years my nickname has been Frank, for my ability to speak openly and honestly about things that others find awkward. This skill is something I teach to others because I firmly believe if we can communicate better about sexual safety, pleasure, and respect we can change the world!

 

I have worked both in Australia and internationally as a Sexologist, designing and implementing projects and sexuality education for audiences ranging from community groups to United Nations staff. 

For the past 6 years, I have been working at the Gold Coast Centre Against Sexual Violence, and I continue to develop projects and programs that address issues of consent such as #WhatDoYouExpect, Elder Sexual Abuse (ELSA), Schoolies, and Start By Believing.  

I also rewrote the Every Body Needs to Know resource with my colleague Natasha Milner to ensure that young people with disability had access to contemporary resources around contraception, pornography, and dating. 

I am the current National Deputy Chair and Queensland President for the Society of Australian Sexologists
